              You should get a call from your background investigator soon!

                        Good luck to all of y'all! We have a young deputy going through the process, and it looks like he will be leaving us in October for this academy. I know I didn't have to tell him, but me being me, I told him to hit the rowing machine hard, do at least 100 pushups and situps every day, get a kettle weight and go to town with it, and lastly, run run run. Watching youtube videos of past Texas DPS academies as well as other state's academies are motivating and informative. Mississippi and Indiana were notable to me, fyi. Again, good luck to y'all!

                          Thanks man for the advice! Have you tried joining DPS?

                      • #14
                        Yes, back in late ‘80’s. At that time , there was a big push to recruit women and minorities, which the troopers told me flat out greatly limited my chances. I made it through everything, but just didn’t make the list. I did 26.5 years with a local department before retiring end of ‘15. I just got on with my current department about a month ago after being fully retired for over 5 years. My goal is to do a total of 30 years, but my mind and body may have different opinions.

                          Nice! thank you for your service sir! I’ve only been a peace officer for 4 years. I finally got into shape and decided to join DPS. Im 29 yrs old and I’m not getting any younger.

                        Thanks for your service, sir! I've already given my basic advice above about getting physically fit and informing and motivating yourself watching training academy videos on youtube. Of course, brush up on the laws -Penal Code, Traffic Code, Health and Safety Code, TABC, and CCP.

                        I'm no expert in anything, but I've been through active service in the USMC, went through two peace officer academies, and had my LE career. When I watch those academy videos I refer to on youtube, I'm glad there are those out there wanting to put so much effort into their career of service. It takes special people to WANT to do that and even more special people who CAN pass the academy, let alone excel.

                        Good luck to all of y'all!
